I read a great quote the other day that said the following: “A budget plan is one where you tell the money where to go instead of wondering where it went.” The Bible speaks a lot about money and personal finances. We are told that we are to be good stewards or managers of the riches that God provides for us. After all everything that we own really belongs to God in the first place. Therefore, if we are going to claim to manage God’s money well, then we must get in the habit of budgeting. We have a responsibility to know where the money is going. The Bible says, “Know well the condition of your flocks, and give attention to your herds” – Proverbs 27:23 ESV. In our current culture, there seems to be more talk about borrowing rather than budgeting, but remember if you are a follower of Christ, then He should be Lord of your pocketbook as well.
